Fear is cancer’s preservative;
cancer’s embalming oil
are Fear’s oil salesmen.
a dragon with snuffed out coal on his breath
molting, talons broken from the struggle
to free yourself of your own skin.
That Dragon, Cancer is an adventure game that acts as a living painting; a poem; an interactive retelling of Ryan and Amy Green’s experience raising their son Joel, a 4-year-old currently fighting his third year of terminal cancer. Players relive memories, share heartache, and discover the overwhelming hope that can be found in the face of death.
It is a videogame composed of pain and hope. It is a story of my son. It is a script written day by day. It is life that moves us space by space, propelled by a mystery we call grace.
